Notice to Client Regarding Operations Under COVID-19
In an attempt to limit the risks associated with the transmission of COVID–19 and comply with CDC guidelines, we will be changing our office policy effective Wednesday, March 18th until Monday, April 6th, for our office. Our office will remain open and at this time all of our attorneys and staff will be present in the office to handle your cases.
Office Appointments: We are temporarily suspending most in–office conferences for clients. For the next few weeks, all conferences will be conducted via telephone. For new and existing clients, if you feel an in–person appointment is necessary, please contact our office, and our attorneys will make the necessary arrangements on a case–by–case basis. We would like to limit the number of people in our office as much as possible to limit any chance of infection and/or spread the virus.
In order to efficiently meet the needs of all parties, it is necessary that we schedule specific times for phone conferences. To schedule a telephone conference, please e mail us, and we will schedule a specific date and time for your phone conference. We will do our best to accommodate your scheduling preference, but please understand that we are attempting to accommodate the changing schedules of all clients due to recent school and business closings.
